2. Smokey Eyes

Good Day everyone!
Assalamualaikum!

It's my 2nd post for the makeup challenge! *clap clap*. haha.

This time, it's about smokey (or smoky. i'm not sure so whatever haha. sorry grammar nazi >_<) eyes.

Smokey eye makeup is a makeup style used to create a dramatic and sophisticated look for the eyes. Deep and rich colours are used to achieve the smokey eye makeup style. 

Although smokey eyes is often associated with a sexy, nighttime look, the kind of smokey that i would show you guys suits day to night time. it's a very wearable everyday look without making you look overdone.

More importantly, it suits everyone despite the eye shape, skin colour etc etc.




 


Below are the products and tools that i used to create the look:
Please let me know if you need a more detailed tutorial.


highlighted steps:
  1. smudge a creamy black eyeliner all over the eyelid using a stiff dome brush
  2. using the same brush, layer a dark brown eyeshadow and start to blend it upward and outward into the crease of your eyelid.
  3. apply the same dark brown eyeshadow to your lower lashline halfway
  4. Using a fluffy blending brush, apply a a matte matchy eyeshadow and  and buff out harsh lines and blend, blend, blend
  5. a few coats of mascara will finish the eye look

One more important tip when wearing smokey eye makeup is to make the eyes the focal point of the face, wear a neutral lipstick or lip gloss.


if you want to pull off this look for night time (a more polished night time look), you can 
  1. increase the intensity of the dark shadows
  2. apply eyeliner to your lid line, tight line and water line


Thank you for reading!
That's all for now.
Till then!
